deja vu...Misinformation, Racism and Militarism Have Frozen Recovery Effort

"we don't need soldiers..."the spin of emphasizing the "unrest". racism and classism in the media does this with every natural disaster that occurs in areas that are predominately people of color.And as we saw in new orleans, the US priority is "security" and "law enforcement" ...not helping people eat and recover. Its a horrible realization each time there is a disaster of this magnitude that capitalists w/ all that military might up their sleeves -always- see these events as an opportunity.

and for all the shortcomings of bill clinton, i thought he handled this BBC reporters attempt to again focus on the acts of violence and "anarchy" quite well....check out the video...
